Welcome to the next step in your yoga journey. VIDA’s 200 Hour Yoga teacher training through Yoga Alliance will enrich and enliven your life.

Structured around the 5 layers of being central to yogic philosophy (the pancamayakosha model) and practice, we will explore how the practices of yoga – from posture, to breath, to meditation, among others – connect you to an integrated sense of self, and ultimately, your most natural teacher, within.

Join the company of DC’s finest teachers in this eight week exploration of your personal practice of yoga on and off the mat. By the end of training, you’ll feel confident leading students one on one, or in a group class in physical practice, breathwork, and meditation. You’ll graduate ready to teach a set sequence, as well as able to design your own intelligent, well-rounded classes.

Welcome to the next step in you yoga Journey!
